Knitting Without Dog Hair Is Not an Option

Hi there - My name is Claudia. I live with my hubby and our two furry kids in Georgia, USA. Originally I am from Germany - southern belle from Bavaria replanted to the Southern US. I am very addicted to knitting - 4-5 projects going at the same time... What can I say...

Deck the Halls

After spending all day decorating the house for the Holidays - Christmas and a little bit of Hanukkah - I am finally at a point where I can take a break and blog a little. I am not done with the tree yet. There is still one entire box of ornaments to go through and pick the ones for this year. One of hubby's other collections (besides the jigsaw puzzles) is ornaments, and he has a ton of beautiful crystal and china ones.

So, now, the outside of our house looks like this:

And here are some pictures of the inside:

A couple of years ago hubby gave me a collection of Cirque Du Soleil ornaments. They are very cool. We both love their shows. I know one is coming to Atlanta in Spring - I wanna go!

Before decorating the tree with the lights, we tested them to see if they still worked:

Testing the Lights

They are a pain to wrap aorund the tree. Hubby likes a lot of lights, so I strung 5 sets of 100 bulbs each on the tree for him.

The Tree

We have an artificial tree - my hands were in pretty bad shape after that and I decided to take a break and get a manicure. Ahhhh...

And - of course - the fiber dogs had to be put through some silliness...

I don't think they really want to be elves...

And in between I had to knit some - on the Goldilocks Socks and the Cashmere Mitts - and I finished the tweed beret. Ooh-la-la - it turned out pretty cute.

AND - the package for Germany is ready to be shipped tomorrow. Nine pounds of knitted goodies and some other gifts are all boxed. Hubby will go to the post office for me tomorrow. Such a sweetie!

Have a great Sunday evening and a wonderful week! See ya knitting somewhere. ;-)

We may actually put up a Christmas tree this year. We haven't done it the past two years.

Wow, it looks so great you are such an inspiration. I think we will decorate this weekend after the party. But alas, no outside lights for me - we don't have any plugs on the front of our house.

:( Sigh :(
